Best Headphones for Running
My favorite running routes involve large parks and trails. But, I run through the city to reach them. I don't know about your city, but around here common obstacles include:
My ears are open so I can hear what's going on around me. Cars. Bikes. Frisbees. Scooters. Tennis Balls. Dogs.

Aeropex are Waterproof
Do you like running in the rain? How about hosing off after a hot, sweaty, summer run? Aeropex lets you do both while listening to your music or podcast. Go ahead and run in the rain, sleet, and snow — you're a runner, aren't you?
Aeropex have an IP67 waterproof rating. They aren't rated for deep sea diving, but if you fall in the pool after a workout you're okay. (Just make sure they're dry before charging.)
If you like a lot of base (or volume) when you run, AfterShokz has you. Say hello to PremiumPitch 2.0+ Stereo Sound. I noticed less sound leakage and vibration with Aeropex compared to my Trekz Airs.
Crank up your power song without concern. The people around you won't hear it. That makes Aeropex good for the office as well as the track.
Magnetic Charging Connection
The Aeropex has a magnetic charging cable. It plugs into any standard USB-charging port. The flexible 2-foot cable is lightweight and compact.
All Aeropex come with two cables. Keep one at home and the other at the office.
Moisture Detection Alert
After wearing these in the rain or for an extreme workout make sure the charging connection is dry before you plug in. There's a moisture detection alert for safe charging.
If the device detects liquid residue the light will flash blue and red. The headphones will vibrate and beep a warning sound. If this happens, dry the charging port and then charge in the normal way.
8 Hours of Music and Calls on Multiple Devices
I can't think of anything better than taking a call in the middle of a run with Aeropex. It's so much better than trying to find your phone in a pocket or belt.
I wear these in the office most days, too. The charge lasts 8 hours (maybe more?). Another feature is multipoint pairing. You can connect your Aeropex to multiple devices!
Aeropex can pair to most Bluetooth devices that use Bluetooth 3.1 or higher. That includes phones, tablets, computers and watches. Aeropex won't pair to gaming consoles and some transmitters.
Two-Year Warranty and Online Help Desk
Use the card that comes with your Aeropex headphones to register for for a two-year warranty. Keep the card in a safe place. I've never had any trouble with my Aeropex (or Trekz Airs), but if you do help is an email or keyboard away.
Check out the online help desk for answers to FAQs. Email email@example.com service if you need more.
Final Thought: Get AfterShokz Aeropex
I recommend these headphones to anyone who will listen to me. (Just ask my mailman and family!)
They're great for runners, bikers, walkers, skaters, and anyone who's active. They're also good for office life. You can listen to your favorite podcast or music and still hear your co-workers when it's time to order lunch!
If you didn't enter the AfterShokz Disney Wine and Dine Sweepstakes, you can't win a pair. So, it's time to ask someone to give you a gift or go buy a pair!

Vision Event Management is helping people maintain healthy resolutions with the inaugural 465 Virtual Challenge. Between Jan. 1 and Feb. 29 participants are challenged to complete 53 miles of exercise, the distance of the loop I-465 forms around central Indiana.
The idea is to motivate people to continue to exercise long past the usual 2-week lifespan of a resolution.
Run 53 Miles Between Jan. 1 and Feb. 29, 2020
I'm in for the Inaugural year of the 465 Challenge! I know it's going to help me stay motivated for my upcoming races.
On January 1, participants receive a tracking form from the race organizers. Track your exercise on the form and submit it when you finish your 53 mile loop. Join a Team for added motivation. I joined the BibRave Team. There's also a 465 Challenge Facebook Group.
53 miles in 60 days works out to less than 8 miles per day. 7.75 miles to be exact. You can do more than one loop of 53 miles if you want. For example:
• 24 Hour Club - Finishing 53 miles in one day!
• Looper Club - Complete more than one loop!
People who challenge themselves even further will get shout outs on socials.
Choose a Registration Option
There are two registration options: Premium and Basic.
Premium registration costs $39.99; finishers receive:
• Bumper Sticker
• Race Bib
• Certificate of Completion
Basic registration is $24.99; finishers receive:
• Bumper Sticker
• Race Bib
• Certificate of Completion
Use code: BIBRAVE to SAVE 10% OFF either option.
Learn more and register at 465challenge.com.
A Social Virtual Race
Remember, it's a VIRTUAL RACE: that means you can complete it on your favorite road, trail or treadmill or pool. Walk, run, bike, skip, crawl to reach 53 miles.
Vision Event Management will send frequent emails including encouragement, updates on how many miles participants should have completed and a suggested training program.
Be part of the larger community of runners by sharing your efforts and progress on social media. Tag @465Challenge and use the hashtag #465Challenge. Follow the hashtag on Instagram and Twitter to see how everyone is doing.
Registration Ends on February 29, 2020
Not sure right now? No worries. You have until February 29 to register. But it'll be much better if you get motivate right now!
Register at 465challenge.com. Don't forget to use code: BIBRAVE to SAVE 10% OFF either option. You'll receive your challenge swag in March.
